A medical official says at least eight people have died in fighting in Somalia’s capital.

Ali Muse, the head of the city’s ambulance service, said at least another 18 people were wounded.

The fighting took place Sunday between pro-government forces and Islamist militants.

Somalia has seen a spike in fighting over the last month. Militants led by the al-Qaida-aligned group al-Shabab are trying to overrun the country’s weak, U.N.-backed government.

Somalia hasn’t had a functioning government in almost 20 years.

    The UN is racist for being their, and the US as well.
    Pull all troops out, or be seen by everyone as racist.

    Africa for Africans only!
    Asia for Asians only!
    Aria for Aryans only!
